yogurt incubating in the dehydrator

Pour contents of your blender into a clean glass bowl and mix in two capsules full of your favorite probiotic powder with a clean spoon. I like Natren's, Dr. Ohira, and Nature's Way. If you are using a powder use about 1/4 teaspoon. This is a great way to test your probiotic powder, if it makes yogurt you know that the cultures are active.

 

Put the bowl in the dehydrator and set the dehydrator at 100 degrees F. The yogurt should incubate for about 3-6 hours.
